Activision has announced the dates for the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer beta, and as usual, PlayStation members are getting a first crack at it.
The beta begins September 16 with an “early access” period for people who have pre-ordered, before opening up to all PlayStation members September 18-20. Xbox and PC players get in on the second weekend, starting September 22 for those who have pre-ordered. You can see the full schedule below.
PlayStation users are getting preferential treatment because Sony and Activision have a deal in place. This may not be the case forever, as Microsoft is in the process of buying Activision and all of its studios and franchises, including Call of Duty.
